Kythnos Vampire


Kythnos vampire is a case of an immortal creature that terrorized the little town of Kythnos in Greece.  Most of the suspected vampires in the island of Kythnos were apparently destroyed due to the vigilance of the people in the area.  They would perform traditional methods of vampire exorcism and the undead attack would cease.  But one of them remained; Andilaveris is known to be a creature who continued to torment the island up to these days.

Andilaveris would love to bother people.  He would walk during the night in the streets of Messaria and would consume great amount of food and break plates and glasses.  This creature is not really a threat to the villagers’ safety but more of an annoyance.  But nonetheless this creature has caused this disturbance that people in the villages refused to leave their house during the night, afraid that they might encounter the Andilaveris.

He also loves to climb the roof of the church and piss on anyone that would pass below.  Andilaveris was said to be a vyrkolakas (a Greek vampire).  He was placed on his grave on Friday as a tradition of the region.  While he was inside his grave and sleeping, the priest ordered the people to place his casket on the river and let the waves carry him to a deserted island (Daskaleio).  They believe that by doing this measure, the vyrkolakas could no longer bother them since they do not have the ability to cross water.


The story about Andilaveris remained strong up to the 19th Century.
